N C Med J. Nov-Dec 2015;76(5):332-4. doi: 10.18043/ncm.76.5.332.


The US Department of Veterans Affairs, in partnership with the Department of Defense, has developed a host of new electronic tools designed to address the mental and behavioral health needs of military service members and veterans. These tools include online self-help programs and companion mobile apps, as well as many of the apps available through the VA App Store. This commentary provides a brief overview of these new tools and discusses some of the ways in which physicians and other medical providers in North Carolina can incorporate these tools into their work with veterans.
